My brother was not very enthusiastic about 40K but he is now. We played an Assault on Black Reach game, I'm sure you're aware of the list but if you're not:
We deployed with 12" between us. koptas opposite dread, termies opposite boyz, nobz opposite marines. sms go first.
Captain Sicarius stared at the battlefield. Little seaparated his elite Space Marines from the raging green tide. Deciding to fire his guns, e ordered the Dreadnought to shoot at the helicopters. Aiming its multi melta, it sent one deffkopta crashing to the ground. The terminators let rip at the nobs, killing one. The tactical marines then fired at the boyz, killing 3 and missing with the missile launcher.
The boyz charged forwards in a frenzy, firing their guns wildly. As a result they caused no damage apart from a lucky shot from a deffkopta immobilising the dreadnought. Lost in the heat of battle, they prepared to charge.
Captain Sicarius (foolishly) decided that his guns could abate the oncoming horde and elected to stay still and fire again. The dreadnought destroyed another deffkopta and damaged the last one whilst the terminators shot down another nob in a flurry of bolts. The flamer and missile launcher killed 4 boy between them whilst the rest of the marines killed 2 boyz.
The boys prepared to charge and moved forwards, again firing their guns madly. They did no damage until being pathetic shots. However, they charged into combat, the thing that they loved. The nobz brought down 3 marines between them and the warboss lifted up his claw, crackling with energy. He slaughtered another 3 marines and the captain and the rest of the sms were only able to kill a nob back. The boyz (after I had rolled a million dice) killed 3 terminators and they killed a few back, powerless to do any damage with just a few attacks between them.
The space marines continued to fight on, losing more of their number. My brother resigned as he was down to a dreadnought, his captain and a termie a the end of this turn while I still had about half my orks intact.
I know I missed out a bunch of the rules but it was to keep this game simple and fun + don't quite understand "Fall back" yet.
